Why I Use a Vitamin C Serum in my Skincare Routine

If I’ve learned anything from years of dabbling in skincare and getting facials here and there, it’s that a Vitamin C serum is important.  A Vitamin C in a serum form seems to be the most effective way for me to use it (rather than just putting an orange on your face, I suppose)  And […]
